    Doesn't something have to be above the gutter in order for it to go down the drain?

    This thread should really be a place to feature inadvertent incidents of humanity and decency that get past the DM subs.

    On phone and not sure how to c and p but the front page of the Scottish Daily Mail today has a big story about how firms will go bust and jobs will be lost because women have the *cheek* to demand equal pay. (Supreme court ruling up here yesterday about a council losing a case which could potentially have a wider impact.) Bloody women, wanting equal pay, however many decades after the Equal Pay Act...

    A women picked up a copy to buy as I was reading the front page. Wanted to ask her what the fuck she was doing.

    given that "man eats burger for dinner" seems to be reasonably large story in most UK media today possibly not the best day to single out the Mail as going down hill

    Sadly this thread can only make more money for the Mail by increasing traffic. There needs to be a mirror site where Mail haters can read the Mail without giving them any hits.

    That was the same price as a burger from our local Green king pub and cheaper than our local Chinese or Indian. A complete non story that also made the BBC website

    online is mostly clickbait ......with bikinis...... and daily updates of just how big can Kim kardishans arse go

    clever advertising ...with piccies of celebs , then halfway down the article ...you can buy clothes somewhat similar .....I wonder how much money is generated from that ?

    Indeed, why not rename the thread to "Why the Daily Mail continues to be a festering arse sore on the rump of humanity"

    "African mum of quins let off £145k NHS bill" squarks today's front page. I haven't deigned to actually read the article, but I suspect it's either bollocks or highly conditional. I also doubt there's any mention of "Aristocrat pays fuck-all tax due to his Nazi-backing ancestors conniving to say he lives in France when he actually lives in Dorset", but I suppose there are issues of headline space.

    There should be a buzz feed daily mail crossover parody, with articles like :

    These TEN easy tricks to rip off our host state saved our family from ruin! You won't believe number seven!

    Five unbelievable things you won't believe about my unbelievable journey to get into Britain without a passport or shoes - you won't believe number four! Unbelievable!

    Twelve sob stories any immigration officer will fall for, and how to tell them convincingly! You won't believe how easily this man conned the British state out of thousands of pounds a month - now he's planning to have more kids at their expense!
